A Look at the CAME-TV Carbon Fiber Tripod and Fluid Head

demoes the CAME-TV carbon fiber tripod and fluid head:

About 3 months ago I had a chance to test out a new tripod from a Chinese company CAME-TV. I have since fell in love with this thing! It’s light yet strong enough to support my full camera crane. The fluid head is super smooth. There is really nothing bad I can say about this tripod.

The tripod system comes in two flavors: CAME-15T, with a payload of 6-12kg and costs $980, and the CAME-20T, with a payload of 29.6kg and costs $3,399 or so.

Editor’s note: With a minimum payload of 6kg, the counterbalance will be useless on most DSLR systems – they are too light.
